Martsman returns on Exegene with two tight crunchy slabs of robot breaks. Since his debut release for Exegene, he's been showing his glitchy expertise on labels such as Offshore and Plain Audio which have been greatly recieved. With more release on Breakin', Counter Intelligence and more on Offshore it's time we got him back for another round of distorted xeroxfunk for Exegene.
'Roads', which has been recently remixed by Sileni for Exegene (and is featured on the CD with Knowledge #66) starts off the journey with luscious ambience and echoed slices of glitched breaks. 'Roads' then moves into a tight rolling number with a deep but rugged bassline. A melange of mangledness twists up things before a funky little bassline bleeps away with a barrage of mechanical edits and cymbal smashes.
The B-side 'Blob' takes the release to a more minimal level. Spacious 808's lead the way over light pads whilst bleeps and plinks flow over a pounding deep kick. Slithers of glitches move in and out of the microbic blips and reverbed claps.
Both these tunes definitely fit into a more daring set to change things up a bit.
